In the ultra-modern city of Olympus, there's always a price to pay. Psyche Dimitriou knew she'd have to face Aphrodite's jealous rage eventually, but she never expected her literal heart to be at stake... or for Aphrodite's gorgeous son to be the one ordered to strike the killing blow. Eros has no problem shedding blood. Raised to be his mother's knife in the dark, he's been conditioned to accept that he's more monster than man. But when it comes time to take out his latest target... he can't do it. Confused by his reaction to Psyche's unexpected kindness, he does the only thing he can think of to keep her safe: he binds her to him, body and soul. Psyche didn't expect to find herself married to the glittering city's most dangerous killer, but something about Eros awakens a fire inside her she's never felt before. As lines blur and loyalties shift, Psyche realizes Eros might take her heart after all... and she's not sure she can survive the loss.
I love Eros & Psyche
Book 2 of the Dark Olympus series. It's a stand alone and you can enjoy it without having read Neon Gods, but the depth of enjoyment would be higher if you read in order. Katee Robert is a pro at weaving the threads of her series together and especially later in the chain, you get more bang for your buck to follow along as she sequel baits us with recurring characters.
I loved Psyche and Eros together so very much. I wish they were real and I could follow Psyche on Instagram.
The way Eros he is soft for her but no one knows, not even her. He wants to protect her so badly that he marries her and even though it's a marriage of convenience, once they give in to their chemistry.... hoo boy... the Katee Robert trademark spice is in full effect!!!
The audio for this one was performed by Zara Hampton-Brown and Alex Moorcock and I loved it. They brought it all to life, from little intimate moments, to family stories and passionate arguments. It was so very enjoyable.
